The people of Arizona have made many changes to the State's Constitution since 1912. The Constitution can be amended by the Legislature confirmed in a voter referendum, or directly by voter initiative. Ever need to know (or just wonder) when a change was made and why?
Celebrating the centennial of the Arizona Constitutional Convention, the Arizona State Library, Archives, and Public Records has taken an idea developed by the State Capitol Museum and put on the web a "Timeline of the Arizona Constitution".
This searchable database can be browsed by year or searched by keyword, year, and type (referendum or initiative). It provides links to the the full text of historical election publicity pamphlets and to current provisions of the Arizona Constitution. It includes every amendment to the Arizona State Constitution since statehood. Useful for legal research, education, and historical exploration.
